LECOURS, André Roch; PARENTE, Maria Alice de Mattos Pimenta; FEIJO, Adriana Vélez  and  MAIA, Alberto. Pure Anartria: Study of Two Cases. Psicol. Reflex. Crit. [online]. 2001, vol.14, n.2, pp. 367-377. ISSN 0102-7972.  http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S0102-79722001000200011.

The mark of birth of neuro-linguistics is considered the publication of the book The Syndrome of Phonetic Disintegration, in 1939, that had as authors: a neurologist, a psychologist and a linguistics. Ten years later the same team of French researchers published about, the disturbance of speech of the patient carrier of pure Anartria. In the present article, we will place the historical polemics regarding a selective disturbance of speech of telencephalic origin and present the first described case, accompanied by the anatomic-pathological description of the brain that had been kept in formol by 20 years accomplished by one of us (ARL). Finally, we will present a Brazilian case, with tomographic images of its brain and spectrographic evaluation of its speech and voice that confirm the pioneer work of Alajouanine, Pichot and Durant.

Keywords : Anartria; speech disturbances; cerebral lesions.
